Ron Paul Criticizes Iran Position Taken by His Son, Rand Paul
Ron Paul on Saturday dismissed as a "joke" the demand by U.S. senators of his party that they must approve a potential agreement over the Middle East country's nuclear capabilities, reports the Houston Chronicle.
"I strongly disagree with the motivation of that statement made by so many members of Congress, especially in the Senate," Paul said at a conference on liberty at the University of Texas at Austin, presumably referring to an open letter senators sent to Iranian officials describing any deal not approved by them as informal.
"They're out to stop peace," he said. "They're terrified that peace might break out."
Rand signed the letter and cosponsored a bill to require the Obama administration to seek congressional review.
Good for Ron, a true man of principle.
